OneLife Technologies Corp., a mobile medical software/data collection company, offers the first AT&T* LTE-M certified medical wearable. The OnePulse smartwatch goes beyond tracking steps. It provides activity trackers, reminders, and alert technologies. Powered by AT&T wireless connectivity, the advanced wearable securely and independently transmits certain critical medical and health data to the cloud. This allows clinicians, patients and their caregivers to monitor user status and well-being.
The AT&T LTE-M connection allows clinicians near real-time access to patient data in a highly secure environment - providing caregivers the ability to intervene when necessary. The LTE-M Low-Power Wide-Area network is designed for IoT devices that are compact. This makes possible OnePulse’ five-day battery life, always on feature and light weight design.
“Enabling AT&T connectivity for our devices is a major step in launching our ‘Hub-of-Care’ concept in becoming a leading Population Health Platform with our innovative wearable having the ability to connect patients to their caregivers, virtually in near real-time, almost anywhere in North America,” stated Robert Wagner, CEO of OneLife Technologies, Corp. “We all want the best healthcare possible – in an emergency, as we age, for our loved ones, or to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Now, that level of service is available with the AT&T-connected OnePulse medical and health smartwatch.”
The OnePulse technology provides data for heart rate, location, movement and sleep at the wrist. OneLife’s proprietary Bluetooth protocol provides the ability to easily connect to other health and medical devices. For example, blood pressure cuff, glucometer, SPo2 monitor, weight scale, etc. can connect for collection and transmission of additional health data tracking. This provides the clinician and patient a wide-ranging view of overall health.
“Connected smartwatches developed with healthcare in mind are a step forward into the future of patient care,” said Joe Mosele, vice president, Internet of Things, AT&T. “The ability to connect caregivers and patients is just one example of how connectivity is transforming healthcare and creating new care models. Our network will help medical providers and caregivers monitor patients from a distance and receive alerts if something goes wrong.”
The OnePulse smartwatch is a valuable tool for the medical provider to monitor chronically ill and elderly patients who plan to “age in place”. It offers benefits for the user, clinician and caregiver:
- 24/7 monitoring with near real-time alerts for family and/or doctor
- Medication reminders and auto prescription refills
- Fall detection
- A customizable suite of services, for specialty conditions
- Fully encrypted medical records that can be accessed via a cloud-based dashboard.
- Artificial Intelligence analytics and predictive analysis
- Open API allows connection to any system including Electronic Health/Medical Record platforms
The OnePulse LTE-M medical and health smartwatch is a complete solution for practical, affordable telehealth and remote patient monitoring. It is expected to be available for purchase by healthcare providers in March of this year.
With its highly secure network, AT&T is enabling the digital transformation in healthcare. From the waiting room to the living room and virtually anywhere in between, AT&T is helping providers improve patient outcomes.
